Love the central premise that all people's problems come from their having been told what to do as children. However I found the male-centric viewpoint pretty choking (The book was written in 1960). And for someone so cool as to run a school in which no-one has ever been made to attend a class, it's hard to take in that he believes that people are gay because something went wrong. ... Oh dear.
